    Capitol Theater For Sale

    BLOOMSBURG, PA — The Capitol Theater is listed for sale on the website below.

    The theater, which I think closed in 1999, had a balcony which was converted to a second theater in the 1970’s. It’s located in the heart of Bloomsburg’s downtown and near the Bloomsburg University Campus. I was in this theater in the 1980’s and it was in decent shape but had been heavily remodeled.

    The owner opened a multi-screen outside of town and decided to close this theater.

    Antique Theatre Seats For Sale

    I have been storing approximately 40 sets of cast row ends. They were designed and signed Heywood Wakefield. I used what I needed for a personal theatre project.

    The original gold leaf is about 90+ percent intact. It is covered over by white and orange paint most of which flaked right off).

    Where the legs met the floor, it is gone due to wear and tear of cleaning, etc. They are intricately designed and the arms are maple. The backs and seats were long gone when I purchased them.

    If you are interested in acquiring them for your project, email
